Kate’s First Babysitters…

Kate’s Mom and Dad had the divine pleasure of having a babysitter for the first time!  Courtney and Damian came down from Salem, MA for a visit.  I am not so sure they knew what they were getting into…

Jennifer and I were quite tired, so Courtney and Damian volunteered to watch Kate in the evening so we could get some sleep!  The new Mom and Dad went to sleep at 8pm on Saturday night together while Courtney and Damian tended to Kate’s every need until 11:30 PM.

The evening was a smashing success for Mom and Dad as they got to sleep together for a few hours without interruption for the first time in two and a half weeks.  The newly married couple (Damian and Courtney were married recently) did not have as much success since Kate was awake and made it clear she should be the center of attention during their babysitting.  They were troopers and Jennifer and I can’t thank them enough!

Thanks Damian and Courtney!  You are welcome back anytime!

    Here’s a thought.
    When Kate is a tad older drop her off at our house, we’ll pamper and spoil her while your off visiting Courtney and Damian.

    Yah, it was great and quite the learning experience! We really enjoyed it.

    Kate taught me what it was to be a baby sitting rookie. But I think we did good.
